Verdict

Captain Bertie sets the standard in this maiden after two progressive runs including in a red hot race on debut but with his price likely to be prohibitive preference is for DRESSING ROOM. Carrying the usual decent pedigree you find with these connections he'll be at home over this trip and has shown ability in a couple of outings. Riot Police is very interesting from top connections and should come on for a debut run but might have a bit to do from his stalls berth.
